That time of year

plum pudding looks good in
a custardy coat
beer, brandy and for the
alcohol free
lemonade shandy

It’s great that Jesus was born in December
January sales wouldn’t work
in September
which leads me to think
this plan was thought out
and that’s what those three
wise men are about,

but while the turkeys are cooking
if you believe and you’re looking
for a sign
that’s fine by me

I found my sign under the Christmas tree,
an IOU
from you know who

someone’s been a naughty boy.
